Foodbook #590 roasted leg of lamb with potatoes


Good morning my friends and happy week, let’s create something delicious today to make our Monday very very special


For the lamb

1.3 kg lamb leg
270 gr. marinade
4 gr. salt
2 gr. pepper

For the marinade

100 gr. olive oil
15 gr. garlic, whole cloves
30 gr. parsley stalks
50 gr. mustard
7 gr. thyme, twigs
5 gr. rosemary, leaves
10 gr. water

For the potatoes

1 kg baby potatoes
70 gr. olive oil
130 gr. lemon juice
1 gr. Laurel
5 gr. oregano
100 gr. butter


For the lamb

In a pan, salt the lamb well with enough salt, and pour over the marinade, smearing with our hands and making sure that it goes everywhere.

Place the lamb on top of the potatoes and cover with foil. Bake in a preheated oven at 120 ° C for about 5-6 hours, depending on the size of the piece we are cooking, until the meat softens and gets a nice color.

For the marinade

Mix in a blender olive oil, a little water, garlic, fresh thyme, parsley along with the stalks, rosemary and a little mustard. Grind them to become a smooth mixture.

For the potatoes

Place the potatoes in the pan, add the oil, butter, lemon juice, oregano, bay leaf and salt.



If the lamb does not get color, increase the oven to 180, remove the foil and cook it for a few minutes so that it gets a nice color.

Stay safe and healthy my friends and take care of your people

My best wishes from Greece
